PREFACE.

THIS book has been arranged on the following plan:Definitions are deferred till they are about to be used. Equations and Problems are introduced at the earliest possible stage, in order to interest beginners.

Each rule is accompanied by very full explanations, so that the book may be used for private study as well as in the class-room.

Beginners should read carefully all the explanations, and study the illustrative examples, before attempting the " examples for practice." As many as possible of these last should be then worked out, the harder questions being passed over at first and marked for solution at a later stage.

Most of the examples are original. Some, however, have been taken, with acknowledgment, from Examination Papers and from other works.

December 1880.

JAMES MACKEAN.
